2017 Chevrolet Traverse vs. 2017 GMC Acadia Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the GMC Acadia than in the Chevrolet Traverse, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Chevrolet Traverse and the GMC Acadia.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Traverse as you will with the GMC Acadia, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Chevrolet Traverse will have less of an impact on your bank account than the GMC Acadia. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Chevrolet Traverse and the GMC Acadia have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Traverse is much wider than the GMC Acadia, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Chevrolet Traverse, which is slightly longer than the GMC Acadia.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Chevrolet Traverse does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the GMC Acadia.

Handling
The Chevrolet Traverse has a larger turning radius than the GMC Acadia, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Chevrolet Traverse is clearly the choice over the GMC Acadia for pulling heavy loads. The Chevrolet Traverse has a little less horsepower than the GMC Acadia.

Utility
The Chevrolet Traverse offers greater seating capacity than the GMC Acadia, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With the Chevrolet Traverse, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the GMC Acadia.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Traverse comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the GMC Acadia.
